Possible scarring: Sometimes scarring bands (adhesions) form after having surgery. These are often asymptomatic, but occasionally they manifest as pain later on. They can be difficult to confirm, but recurrent symptoms would prompt further investigation. I would begin with an exam and a sonogram to evaluate for other causes such as an ovarian cyst. If nothing is identified, and the pain persists a DX laparoscopy. ...Read more

Scar tissue?: Sometimes scar tissue can cause pain in an area where there was previous surgery. It could also be your colon - constipation, colitis or diverticulitis. If you have bowel changes, fever or nausea / vomiting then see a doctor. Otherwise some motrin might help with the pain. ...Read more

I'm having severe pain in my lower right abdomen. I've had a hysterectomy yet only have my left ovary. I've had an appendectomy. I was told I had an ovarian cyst on the left side, so what is causing the pain on the right?

Depends: How long ago was the surgery? If recent, they may have accidentally left an instrument or sponge in, or it could be a complication related to surgery. Otherwise, it could be something else, and you should see your doctor. ...Read more

Can you get ovarian cancer after a hysterectomy?

Can you get ovarian cancer after a hysterectomy?

Yes: "hysterectomy " technically means removal of the uterus, not the ovaries and the uterus. A bso (bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy) means removal of both ovaries and fallopian tubes. Even if the ovaries have been removed, there is a very small chance that ovarian cancer can develop from cells that line the abdominal cavity. This chance is much less than 1 in 100. ...Read more

I have ovarian cysts on both ovaries since a hysterectomy...Will the doctor remove them?

I have ovarian cysts on both ovaries since a hysterectomy...Will the doctor remove them?

Depends: At 39 years old, you probably have functioning ovaries. If they are removed you are (without hormonal replacement) plunged into menopause. A question would be, are you in pain, or are the ovaries just known to have asyptomatic cysts on them? Most physicians would remove symptomatic ovarian cysts if other means to shrink them didm't work. ...Read more

At 27, I had ovarian cancer and then a hysterectomy. Is HRT safe for me? My cancer was malignant dysgermanoma.

At 27, I had ovarian cancer and then a hysterectomy.  Is HRT safe for me?  My cancer was malignant dysgermanoma.

Yes: Before your ovaries were removed, they made hormones (hrt) so you should be fine using replacement after the surgery. That particular type of cancer should not be affected by replacement. A person with breast cancer, active blood clots, certain types of uterine cancer or undiagnosed vaginal bleeding should not use hrt. ...Read more
